lyrics

The alarm yells 4:30 AM
what a nifty life: brother's flight leaves at 6:55 /
Left in sunrise, all roads lead to Dallas
Cassadaga communes with the dead and Oberst sings, no words are said /
Different destinations all leading to one
sentiments that trouble you as summer sun comes up over DFW /

Red guitar that caught my eye
with its unique call in the antique mall /
My brother, I, sister Starnes
the white friends would soon beseech, we was all down at the city beach /
Then summer night dinner time
we're crowded at the Chili's booth where we touted our steely youth /

Ravenswood sunset through the trees
yards glowin' green in summer's sight, his smoke's a ghost swimmin' in the light /
Golden bloated flies was chewing away a dead frog
emboldened throated I burning barefoot black jog /

Speeding the backroads of Johnson county
I put on myself a bounty
then I'm driving all over this godforsaken town
looking for comfort, something to write about /
I was a frantic boy with such a loss
but somewhere sometime that's dropped
I pray my words be arrows ever hitting their mark
with a few, a slew hitting the bulls-eye of your heart /
These songs have always existed
oh dear God what is it
you're trying to do with me?
I'm straining my eyes to see /
People never change, that implies up or down
on a horizontal plane, we just stumble around
but now I'm walking halfway home
or I guess I could be halfway gone /
The sun dove into the horizon
and a heavy blue cloud wants to pull me in \

Ordering the calamity of existence into the clarity of sound. These are the many moments of my life reincarnated as poorly produced folk songs.
